Prayers never go unanswered so never give up hope.

We all struggle between our natural instincts and the ways of the Lord. Strive to embody the Beatitudes, the moral code for Christian living, and take comfort in knowing our God is a God who listens to our prayer.

“Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven” (Luke 6:23). Talk about the Beatitudes with your family. Is there one you want to work on?

In our lives we are invited to pursue the BE-attitudes given to us by Jesus and set our minds on “what is above.” If you do this and pray, know that God hears you. Don’t give up hope.

For additional reading: Colossians 3:1-11 and learn more about St. John Chrysostom.
